Expert review of Howth

Dublin's prettiest coastal village Howth is reached by a scenic DART rail trip north.

A beautiful village to spend some time and my favourite walk/hike in Dublin takes you along the coast up to Howth Head for stunning coastal views. There is excellent sailing (Howth Yacht Club), watersports and golf. Delicious seafood restaurants and cosy pubs are in abundance, and weekend markets in summer months will treat you to quirky clothes and mouthwatering tasty bites and organic produce. The DART (rail line) from Dublin city will take you about 20 minutes so check rail times and avail of public transport to make the most of the scenery.

Price advice: 


Expert tips: 
Visit the weekend markets in the summer.
Excellent golf and sailing.
